The FR-WC ALC recently contributed funding to assist the students at Skyline High School’s Green Team and adviser Kara Lewallen in purchasing lunch bags and books that promote benefits of using organic materials that can be reused, the concepts of “fair trade” and recycling/disposal of plastics and non-organic waste. The funds will allow them to purchase the books and bags in order to sell them as a combo to “Buy One, Give One”. For the cost of $35 a book and bag will then be donated to a kindergartner. Any funds raised will be put toward the purchase of additional bags and books, recycling bins for Town and County walking trails, a wildlife/pollinator garden at the high school, and a community Earth Day celebration to be held April 27th at Skyline High School.

These contributions are made possible through a non-competitive grant from the Office of Environmental Education of the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality, which promotes educational opportunities for the recycling, reusing, and reducing of litter and waste products in our everyday lives.

The Front Royal – Warren County Anti-Litter Council’s Mission is: “To educate, motivate and participate in the prevention of litter and to assist the citizens of Front Royal and Warren County to become better stewards of our environment.”
